Nice to meet you

Hi there! I’m Virpi Jalonen, founder of The Career Atelier and Your Personal Career Trainer.

I’ll bring to you my experience from various HR roles, having specialized in recruitment and talent acquisition in international and globally known companies. I have been working in both big corporations and small startups in the fields of IT, technology and the creative gaming industry and have interviewed hundreds of people and reviewed even more CVs.  

Based on what I have seen, many people could bring out more their strengths, skills and creativity in their applications and could perform better in job interviews if they had the chance to practice in advance.

Through The Career Atelier you can find a new direction for your career, get practical insight for improving your application and practicing for interviews. And I’m not talking about just sugar coating your old CV. I’m talking about getting to know what YOU are best at and then making sure that will be noticed also by others. 

Are you ready? Let’s get that dream job for you!

Greetings from clients 

"Virpi was fantastic in helping me rethink my CV and job search strategy as I transitioned from looking for jobs in Spain to finding new work opportunities in Finland. She is full of creative ideas and solutions, and her enthusiasm and optimistic outlook are contagious! Not only did Virpi help me revamp my CV, but she also gave my morale a boost! Virpi is an outstanding professional and clearly passionate about her work. I would definitely recommend her services."​

"Working with Virpi was an absolute pleasure. Her years of experience in HR shine through her work. Her attention to detail, flexibility and insights all made a perfect combination for a seamless collaboration. I would absolutely recommend teaming up with Virpi no matter what career stage you might be at, her expert advice will be well worth it!"
"Virpi was excited from the beginning about helping me with my CV and she had good ideas and recommendations as to what I should work on. I am looking forward to working on my CV and portfolio with Virpi. I especially liked her comment about the fact that not every creative person, who loves what they do, needs to become a leader in order to progress in their career. I would highly recommend Virpi to anyone who needs help in their professional development."
